Cindy, how is the effexor and does it have fewer side effects (cognitive, not physical)?

I'm at such a loss over what to do with Serzone. I will have 2-3 days well-being and less anxiety, but it never lasts longer. Soon I'm angry and spiteful and can't stop obsessing about what's happening in my brain and what a bad person I am (I know that sounds simplistic). The worst thing is a feeling of complete detachment from my social life. There's a huge wall between me and my friends and I always leave early out of frustration. I feel most alone when I'm with other people, if that makes any sense.

I originally thought these bouts were brought on by minor alcohol consumption -- I'm talking 1-3 beers -- but this last time, I crashed without any chemical involvement.

Each time I have these bouts, I've been increasing my dose by 50 mg. thought maybe I've passed the doseage that's right for me and moved to that place I seem to read about where Serzone just adds to the depression. I scaled back to 350 mg today, and now I feel pretty good (although I can't be sure that's why)

Anyone have similar problems? Serzone -- although I'll get angry and obsessive -- keeps my from actually FEELING the suicidal drives and all-encompassing desperation, but I'm not really having any fun. Maybe another drug. Maybe buspar, maybe WB or an older AD.

Maybe i'll just have a few drinks with my friends tonight and force myself to have fun. Damn the torpedoes
